Geometric realizations of special toroidal complexes

Full-Text   Cite this paper   Add to My Lib


If all faces of a toroidal polyhedron are k-gons, what are the possible numbers n of faces? It follows from the Euler characteristic that for such polyhedra k is one of 3, 4, 5, 6. The paper provides an almost complete answer in all these cases, altough several specific questions remain. Some of the polyhedra found show that the constructions are rather complicated in some instances; this may provide an incentive for searching simpler realizations.
